If I recall there are no other stones on Patch Hill. I missed your original comment. I would be glad to show it to you sometime. PWax should have my contact information.

Triangulation is best applied on near flat surfaces. There is a pretty good grade between the stone and the rise. Amateur alignments based off the stupid sheet and evidence of indigenous piles lead to the observation. Without either it is a grave marker. Slightly up trail is a wall with three or four platforms. I have not tried to evaluate those. From the first or second platform this may be the pointer rather than the observation point.
